In this blog posted 1 November 2020, Professor Miles Richardson shares research which found some unexpected results. This includes finding that neighbourhood deprivation was positively associated with children’s nature connectedness, and an unexpected negative relationship between neighbourhood greenspace and nature connectedness. The strongest predictor of children’s nature connectedness is having an adult with high nature connectedness in the same household. The author suggests that that policy and programs geared to reconnecting children with nature should go beyond a focus on visits and access. The purpose and reality of that access and those visits needs to be considered.
